Fairgrounds buildings need to be stabilized

September 21, 1999

Hagerstown's Mayor and City Council members agreed Tuesday to look into ways to stabilize and secure the buildings at the old entrance to the Hagerstown Fairgrounds until those buildings can be renovated.

Renovation costs for the fairgrounds entrance building and the adjoining keeper's residence/secretarial office are estimated at about $495,000, according to figures provided by the City Planning Department.

Stabilizing and securing the properties probably would include boarding the windows and putting something over the roof to prevent further leaking. It was unknown how much that might cost.

The Mayor and City Council agreed to discuss the cost of stabilizing and securing the buildings at their Oct. 12 work session.
